  • No SOUND. Definite Codec Problem. Help!

    Windows XP. Two systems, same problem, one has a Realtek AC'97 audio driver, the other has a RealtekHD (an EEE PC). Here it is:

    So just to get this out first, EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS. The computer is "hearing" the sound, the software is sensing the signal--I know this because it seeks and shows RDS data. Everything is working up to the point where I should be able to hear it. But no...

    Additionally, and strangely, when I go into the control panel -> sounds and audio devices -> the the "voice" tab, I can do a "test hardware" for voice recording which allows me to hear the signal as if it were coming through the mic. But that's it. The only way.

    Now HERE is the biggest symptom of the issue. Even though I can select the USB Audio Codec as the recording device, when I go to volume control (playback, recording) it has no options and everything is grayed out. Same in control panel.

    Brand new. Installed everything per instructions. to troubleshoot I have already installed on two computers and the problem repeated itself.

    PLEASE HELP.

    that is all correct.. there is NO adjustments in XP (os limitation)

    course i dont know what your are using... but lets assume BoomzBox Software

    right click, settings, enable audio engine, enable monitor, select USB Audio CODEC

    exit settings... you shoudl hear audio

      REMEMBER 1st time you plug it in, windows thinks you want to playback your audio though this device, which of course you cant, reset your DEFAULT PLAYBACK DEVICE

        Solved. Thanks Mitch... I had not enabled the audio engine in the settings.

        Now, I should be able to use CF with a few more steps...

          great!

          CF on xp is a little tricky (cause they got a bug in thier device enumeration for the wave in devices on xp)

            I've seen some of your other advice on that. Editing of a system file is required? I'm sure I can find the thread again. If it's easy, and you see this, you could always post the line to edit here.

            I've heard the bug is easy to fix when you have the right info to replace in the file.

                O.K. Everything works in BoomzBox, but still not Centrafuse.

                I have changed the config file just like your instructions and the USB device just WILL NOT ENUMERATE in the record line-in list.

                Here's the thing. Everything is working. There is data from the radio station. I know the signal is being received by Centrafuse. But there is no sound.

                UPDATE: I want to clarify that I see the device in the PLAYBACK LINE IN but not the RECORD LINE IN. I don't know how to fix that.

                  you're right, it WILL NEVER enumerate in the record line-in list
                  its a bug in CF, i think i have said this 1000+ times

                  set to hd radio
                  set buffered audio on, set (on page 2) step to 100khz
                  set none for record and playback lines
                  SAVE
                  EXIT CF
                  EDIT config file...
                  restart CF
                  go to radio... do you hear it? no, edit config file again
                  most of the time is 1, but could be 2, it all depends on how many
                  wave in devices you have
                  DO NOT go back to radio config!

                    Well, this will make Mitch upset, but IT DOESN'T WORK. I have followed your exact instructions.

                    <RADIOLINEIN>1|-1</RADIOLINEIN>
                    <RADIOLINEIN>2|-1</RADIOLINEIN>
                    <RADIOLINEIN>3|-1</RADIOLINEIN>
                    <RADIOLINEIN>4|-1</RADIOLINEIN>
                    <RADIOLINEIN>5|-1</RADIOLINEIN>
                    <RADIOLINEIN>6|-1</RADIOLINEIN>

                    No sound.

                        Here it is:

                        C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Centrafuse\System

                        File is attached. It defaults NOT to -1|-1, by the way, but to NONE. So I have already changed it.

                            try this....

                            (FILE IN LATER POST)

                            note where it finds the file...
                            if it cant find it automatically, it will let you do it manually

                            in this case the real settings is by user

                            let me know if it works

                            it will set for you

                            to HDRadio
                            100khz
                            and the line in you select

                            let me know for sure, that usb audio codec shows in your list

                            mitch
